I don't know where to start with this review. This is simply the best BBQ I've personally ever had. You HAVE to try the beef rib and the brisket. The beef rib is huge, tasty, tender and certainly worth the price. The bark on the brisket with a rich smoky flavor is unbelievable. I have to give a shout out... More

I agree with Guy Fieri, this place is "off the hook!" Completely worth the almost hour-long wait. Surprised we didn't come out smelling like a smokehouse though. We did not want any leftovers since we were on our way to the airport. We ordered perfectly for 2 adults and a teen. We got a 3 meat platter with sausage, ribs,... More

You will, wait in line to get in. But the food is mouth watering. My favorite was the pulled pork and Beef rib. You can't get BBq like this in New York. The Mac and cheese comes loaded with bacon... Hello. The best deal on the menu has to be the $1 cookie. It is huge and a would cost... More

We visited Dallas for the first time on a pleasure weekend, and when traveling, always love to sample the local favorite foods. We were looking for good Texas barbecue, and literally every local we met insisted that we go to the Pecan Lodge. There would be a wait to be sure, but we wouldn't regret it. How right they were!!...

Our first experience of a true Texas BBQ restaurant. Fantastic. The food was superb and the atmosphere very enjoyable. A wait to get seated but worth every second.

Just ate here w my hubs and 1 kiddo. Waited for about an hour. Totally worth it! Food comes out quickly once you order. We were on our way to the airport so ordered to have no leftovers. We got a 3 meat plate with pulled pork, regular sausage and a rib with a side of beans, 1/2 lb of... More

Went to lunch with a co-worker while in town for business. The line was out the door. Went to the Express Line and got our food. This was without a doubt the BEST Brisket sandwich I've ever had. The Mac and Cheese only enhanced the experience. Got Banana Pudding for desert and that was the icing on the cake. If... More

After seeing so many raving reviews on Pecan Lodge, I put it on our must eats for our recent Dallas trip. I was already concerned that because of the Easter Holiday it may not be open, so I called several weeks ahead and looked on website for closures. Unfortunately no one would answer the phone. I called for two hours... More

When I am in Dallas, I am going to the Pecan Lodge to get a big beef rib and some brisket. Nothing is going to stop me. Nothing should stop you either! A quick tip, order at least a trough or five pounds and use the line in the side door to skip the LONG line. You will thank me!... More
